Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes join PETA in calling for the transfer of ‘Mali’ the elephant from Manila Zoo

FHM’s sexiest, Marian Rivera and actor Dingdong Dantes have joined the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia’s campaign to transfer Mali, a solitary elephant constantly suffering in pain from potentially fatal foot ailments and held captive in a barren enclosure at the Manila Zoo.

Rivera and Dantes join Kim Chiu, Ely Buendia, and Gerald Anderson in calling for the transfer of Mali to a lush sanctuary.

The Filipino stars posed for a mug shot-like picture, holding cards that bear their name followed by the words “Wants Mali Freed,” which was released by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia.

“Mali has been sentenced to a miserable life of solitary confinement with absolutely nothing to do day after day, year after year,” says PETA Asia Campaign Manager Rochelle Regodon. “How long will the deafening call for her freedom—coming from scientists, politicians, religious leaders, and celebrities—be ignored by her cruel captors at the Manila Zoo?”

Earlier this year, Baywatch star Pamela Anderson asked the President of the Philippines, Benigno Aquino, III, via letter, a dinner “date” to discuss the transfer of the ailing elephant.

Wildlife/Conservation Biologist Blair Csuti, Ph.D. said that “these conditions are clearly sub-optimal for elephants and can lead to serious infections, particularly of the foot bones and connective tissue, a leading cause of mortality in captive elephants.”
